Pat Sloan: Free pattern from my guests Connie Kauffman, Caroline Hulse, Gemma Jackson, and Roseann Kermes! All the links are at the END to FREE patterns and tutorials from my guests!  American Patchwork and Quilting Pocast guests Connie Kauffman May 2015

Connie Kauffman's newest book is called Little Gems, 15 paper pieced miniature quilts... ALL using up scraps!  So many of you are loving mini quilts right now and Connie has great projects for you. I am excited to hear how she approaches mini quilt making, scrap use, and she has some great tips for us on paper piecing small things. 

American Patchwork and Quilting Pocast guests Caroline Hulse May 2015

I first meet Caroline Hulse of SewCaroline at the trade show. She is a clothing pattern designer and has fabric lines with Art Gallery.  What I love is that her clothing is for adults and they are things we can make! I'm always drawn to clothing that is doable as I first learned to sew by making clothes, which I did for many years.  Caroline has some tips for us today on how to get started on clothing and how to work with non cotton fabrics.. knits and wovens. Can't wait!

American Patchwork and Quilting Pocast guests Gemma Jackson May 2015

I have followed Gemma Jackson's at her site Pretty Bobbins Quilting, and at her Instagram for awhile. I love her sense of style, her approach to quilt making, and the beautiful added layer of quilting she adds to a quilt top.  Gamma lives in Australia and I'm so happy to have her join me to today to talk about her works and color!

American patchwork Guest Roseann Kermes guest

Roseann Kermes of Rosebud's Cottage is back to chat with me about making ourselves a better quilter. This is our hobby and we all approach it a different way. Some of you love perfection, and really want to embody that in your quilt making. Others want to create is a more free flowing way. But we all want to be better to some degree. Roseann and I got to thinking about that and came up with Five things that we think help us all be a better quilter!
